FERGUSON, Mo., 2017-Jan-23 — /EPR Retail News/ — Schnuck Markets, Inc. today (01.20.2017) announced that it will move operations of its Cool Valley, Mo store to the nearby community of Ferguson, Mo. once the building at 49 N. Florissant Road is vacated by Shop ‘n Save.
Schnucks is the sub-landlord/tenant of the Ferguson building and was recently notified by representatives of sub-tenant Shop ‘n Save that they plan to exit the location when the current sublease expires on March 31, 2017. Schnucks plans to complete the move in early April.
According to Schnucks Chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck, Schnucks hopes to better serve North County residents at the new location. “Relocating to the Ferguson location will allow us to bring our unique combination of quality, service, selection and value to more customers in the area,” Schnuck said. “We welcome the present Shop ‘n Save customers and believe our Cool Valley customers will follow us one mile north on Florissant road.”
To minimize any inconvenience to current pharmacy patients, Schnucks also has agreed to purchase the pharmacy files of the Ferguson Shop ‘n Save effective Jan. 27. Between then and the time Schnucks moves to the new location, pharmacy customers can get their prescriptions filled at the Cool Valley Schnucks Pharmacy or any other nearby Schnucks Pharmacy. Once the move is complete, all pharmacy files from the Cool Valley Schnucks will transfer to the new location.
The Ferguson site is just over one mile away from the Cool Valley Schnucks located at 1225 South Florissant Road. Schnucks has served the Cool Valley community since 1964 and at its present location since 1991. In total, Schnucks operates eight stores in the North St. Louis County area employing more than 900 teammates.
